Authorities: Travis County inmate dies after collapsing Saturday


An inmate at the Travis County correctional facility in Del Valle who was accused of stabbing his wife died of a stroke  on Saturday at University Medical Center Brackenridge.

According to the Travis County sheriff’s office, Pablo Machin Conde, 81, collapsed at the jail around 9:30 a.m.

Conde was taken to the hospital, where he was admitted to the intensive care unit and put on life-support.

Authorities said Conde’s condition did not improve and he died just before 4 p.m.

The Travis County medical examiner determined the cause of death was a stroke, the sheriff’s office said.

Conde was arrested on Nov. 14, 2015, on a charge of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. He is the first Travis County inmate to die while in custody this year. 

Another inmate, identified by the sheriff’s office as 55-year-old Jacqueline Key, died on Dec. 29 after being taken to the hospital.
